    Exactly! In fact, the article mentions that. That's why I was wondering why he posted it.

    And yes, it will be nice if one day people do realise that women do different things better than men do, but in order for this to happen successfully what women do well will need to be respected by both men and women themselves. It is difficult for women to respect what is given less status and economic benefits and want to do it. The main obstacle to overcome will be to make what women would do naturally more economically respected. But, there is progress being made in this area too. Things like counselling and therapy are becomming big business and more and more well paid, and this industry is natural for women and also dominated in greater numbers by them.
    What women do better than men, according to Harry:

    Pop babies out of their uterus
    Burp babies
    Diaper babies
    Cook for their men
    Vacuum, dust, sweep and mop for their men
    Work as nurses, teachers, and dirty librarians
    Act in porn

    Bullcrap, women were not treated as some disposable slave.
    By and large that is what men have been through out all of history.
    We have always been the disposable gender.

    Between war and work, we have always been expendable to society.

    Women have a definite advantage over men.
    Modern schooling is largely designed by and operated by women.
    Their gender bias comes over into the structure of the school itself and displaces boys, who would otherwise be successful in the right atmosphere.

    Indeed, and one would not have to look far to find convincing arguments for it. Economics could be more successful, if they were approached from both the male prespective and the female prespective. A female banker in Iceland who founded her own bank and has all female employees has demonstrated the female side of this economic success. But, the problem is that these 2 approaches have not yet been combined to make one solution which would be better than the individual solutions.

    Great job at hyperbole, care to actually add something?

    Are you kidding me? For centuries women were treated this way. In some cultures they still are.

    By and large that is what men have been through out all of history.
    We have always been the disposable gender.

    Between war and work, we have always been expendable to society.
    Since when? Yes, it's such a burden to be at the top.

    Yeah, thank goodness there are men who support womens rights. So often discussions like this get mowed over with sexist abuse, that most women have heard more than enough of, and likely back away from discussing politics and their approach to it, because of the abuse.

    My boyfriend also is heavily supportive of womens rights. Though he can be as insensitive to them as men generally are, because they simply dont see the issues that effect women and not them, until women put them forward for attention.

    I was not trying to paint women in a dis favorable light.
    It seems you and the other trolls here seem to assume I'm some misogynist twit.
    Quite the contrary, I want women to do what makes them happy.
    The same goes for men.

    I think that the notion that women are outdoing men is dishonest and inflammatory.
    I think the notion that women were slaves, is dishonest and exaggerated.

    An opinion with weight, which is also gender neutral.

    Natural progression is good, I have no problem with that.
    What I do have a problem is with people thinking that men are constantly holding women back.

    It's a victim mentally, not grounded in reality.

    Equality of outcome for 2 distinctly, biologically different beings is definitely utopian.

    How is the modern educational system different from the educational system 100 years ago? Weren't children 100 years ago expected to sit quietly in a classroom and learn?

    Poor, poor men. Poor, mistreated men. You suffer so.

    White women are discrimination against. Yes black people are too. All discrimination is bad. No point in comparing them, except to identify areas for progress.
